AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Mark S___, a private detective, is hired in the 70s to discover the mystery of a Presbyterian minister's wife's visits to Melbourne from their country home, as she becomes increasingly mad. Supposedly visiting her son's grave, she in fact visits him, a buglar hiding from the police who also believe him dead. A coarse simpering cousin and a criminal groom also involves themselves in the tale. (PB)
